Wonder / Second bed, sleeps 4 on Wonder?
Last post by athooya -
I wonder why there is NO SECOND bed on any of the Wonder models?  None of the Wonders can seatbelt 4 and sleep 4, while the equivalent Unity models can seatbelt 4 and sleep 4.  Why is that?  The floor plans look the same to me on both the Unity and Wonder.

For example, when I look at the floor plan and the Youtube video of the Unity Rear Lounge (RL), I see that the two front side seats have belts and they can be turned into a SECOND bed.  The Wonder Rear Lounge looks the same, but cannot seem to be configurable into a bed ...

Can Leisure Vans seatbelt 4 and sleep 4 on the Wonders?

The issue may not be the 100 lb weight but rather nothing to firmly attach the tire mount to.  All of the beams in the roof are aluminum.  A 100 lb tire will be a devastating projectile in an accident and there's no way a mount will hold.  There isn't enough room under an LTV for a tire either. 

You'll need a rear hitch mount carrier like in my link.

Thanks for the input, guys.

May I ask you for more input about why you think a 100 lb. tire on the roof would be a bad idea?

I have walked around on the roof of the Unity, and I weigh well more than 100 lbs. I looked at the spare tire carrier attached to the towing receiver you linked to, but it doesn't seem like a very elegant solution.

What about hanging a spare tire UNDER the RV from the frame? I've seen several RVs that do this by design.

Thanks for the link to the RV metal tire valves that are bent to make checking the pressure on the dually tires less cumbersome. I will look into this some more.

Again, Thanks for the input and any other thoughts folks may have about carrying a spare on a Unity.

I want to thank everyone four your help. I learned a lot from this. I guess for a 76 year old, that is a major accomplishment. I did find the inverter and yes it was behind the bottom drawer in the bath room. Turned it on and instant success. A big  Thumbs up to all of you.

                                                            THANK YOU

According to the thread posted just above yours, the inverter is located behind the pull-out drawers in the bathroom.

I have a Wonder Murphy Bed and my inverter is in an outside compartment which is why I figured yours was too.  But it isn't according to the thread in the link I posted above.

Thanks to all but it looks like I need to explain my unit better. It is a 2015 Unity Murphy Bed Model. The Television is mounted across from the bed in a cabinet. It pops up when pushing a release and it can be pushed back down. The Power Converter is mounted in the same cabinet to the right close to the floor. I do have batteries for the unity and also a generator, the outlet for the television does not  power by just batteries (shore power not connected), generator running or by shore power.  I will look for the inverter in one of the outside compartments.

Well, the inverter appears not to be in an outside bin.  According to this thread, it is located behind the pull-out drawers in the bathroom.  Push black tabs on drawer slide (each side of drawer) to remove the drawer.

That unit seems to convert 110v coming into the RV to DC to power 12v DC items.  An inverter takes 12v power from your RV house batteries (not the chassis battery) and changes it to 110 volts.  The TV and some other outlets should be powered through this inverter.  However, if the RV is plugged into shore power, the 110v AC shore power is still routed through the inverter but the inverter is fused with a circuit breaker which protects it from pulling too much current whether on shore power or inverted 110v from the batteries.  Don't you have batteries to run your RV when you aren't plugged in?  If so, you have an inverter too.  This is a separate item usually in an outside bay close to the RC coach (not chassis) battery.  Converter and inverter is 2 separate things.
